Local wreckers, or www.car-part.com


You want aftermarket or used OEM?
Skin or rebar?

Thanks for the reply.

Aftermarket or used OEM? I don't know. Either is probably ok as long
as it is in good shape and can be painted. But can you let me know
what you suggest?

Sorry but I don't know what "skin or rebar" refers to.

My wife damaged the left lower side of the bumper. It appears to be
purely cosmetic damage but it looks horrible.

Thanks.

GT

I'd recommend a used factory ("OEM") part. Aftermarket is crap and fits
badly.

The "skin" is the plastic part that is apainted the same color as the rest
of the car. The "rebar" is the steel bar underneath that is the actual
bumper.

Then get it repainted. If the damage is just cosmetic, it should be
fixable. You'd need to get a replacement bumper repainted anyway. Even if
there is a small tear, they can fix that too.
